St Urho: Survival Mode – Schedule of Events
St Urho’s Weekend will be quite a bit different this year. There are no indoor social activities at the Community Center this year. Instead there will be a combination of online/livestream events as well as outdoor events, the main one being the parade at Noon on Saturday March 20th.
We ask that you wear masks and keep your group small so as to keep everyone safe so we can be together again next year. We will also be livestreaming the parade for folks to watch from home.
Let’s save our toilet paper and our grapes from those evil grasshoppers. We all know they hoarded the supplies others needed to survive. We fully understand the world isn’t out of the woods yet and that’s why we ask you to be safe.
